Physicians Report More EHR Training Needed

During the past decade, America’s physicians — particularly, family physicians — have invested lots of money and countless hours in implementing electronic health record (EHR) systems.
Some physicians eagerly dived into the EHR pond; others were pushed by government initiatives, such as meaningful use, that were intended to spur technology uptake but that have become increasingly burdensome to physicians. Now, a new report ( titled “Physicians Use of EHR Systems 2014” shows that when compared with a similar survey five years ago, physicians’ satisfaction with their EHRs is declining.
For instance, in 2010, 61 percent of respondents said they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their EHRs, compared with just 34 percent in 2014.
